We stayed at this property in bend looking at the reviews on tripadvisor and booking.com and we got what we expected. A not so low cost motel in a small but vibrant town. The town of Bend in itself is small so all the eating places and breweries were just 5-10 minutes away. This helped us since we had a... More

My friends I used TA's ratings to find our hotels for our recent motorcycle ride and they are spot on. As a group of guys we were looking for inexpensive clean lodging and that's exactly what we got. Plus it was only 4 blocks from silver moon brewing. We would definitely stay here again.

First of all, I want to start off by saying that the family that owns this motel was very nice and professional. That was the only positive part of our experience at the Rainbow Motel. The reviews on Trip Advisor were generally positive, so we were very surprised when our room was extremely dingy. We brought our dog with us,... More

Room ok for price. Close to downtown. Really needs attention to detail. The new building clean but sketchy property next to parking. Holiday motel better for the price. Sound proof and quiet. Needs to remodel.

The marquee advertised the cheapest rates in town, and I was trying to conserve funds. The owner was friendly and aware of my desire the park my bike in front so I could keep an eye on it. The room was $49.95 for a non-smoking, kitchenette room with two beds. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The... More

The Rainbow Motel met all my 'must-haves': quiet, spotlessly clean, good pillows, hair dryer, walkable to downtown. It also has mini frig and microwave, and good coffee all day in the lobby. It's only about 6 blocks from the center of Bend and all the shops, restaurants, and Drake Park. The owners are terrifically accommodating, even allowing an early check-in... More

We chose the Rainbow Motel for a few reasons: 1) the price was right-$107 total for two nights. 2) the location-walkable to downtown Bend and walking was important since we knew we'd be sampling much of what Bend has become famous for. 3) the Trip Advisor reviews seemed realistically positive....we like to splurge occasionally, but are perfectly content with a...

I was pleasantly surprised at the Rainbow Motel, great spot, clean, comfortable and friendly owners. My room was average size, with fridge and microwave, table with 2 chairs & other standard furniture. Decor is a bit dated, but well cared for.

In July my husband and I stayed at the Rainbow Motel for the second time. This time, we didn't have reservations and when we drove in the vacancy sign was not on. We assumed that there was not a room available; however, we decided to check and as it turned out, moments before we walked in, they had received a... More

First of all that picture IS NOT of the Rainbow Motel. When I lived in bend I had my family stay there all the time because it was very affordable, but very clean and family friendly. It is also within walking distance of downtown Bend which is great. We only stayed in the non-smoking rooms which are a newer addition,... More
